A new prize has been established with the generosity of law firm Meredith Connell to recognise and reward excellence in the study of Corporate Finance Law, a course taught at the Law School by Meredith Connell partner, Nick Williams.

Valued at $2,000, the Meredith Connell Prize in Corporate Finance Law is the largest subject prize offered by the Law School and will help encourage excellence in corporate finance law. The inaugural prize will be awarded to the top student from the 2012 Corporate Finance Law class at the Law Student Awards in May this year.

Dean of the Auckland Law School, Andrew Stockley, says that the level of the prize not only recognises student excellence but also gives support to the Law School in general. “We are working towards supporting every subject by way of an appropriate prize and are grateful to Meredith Connell for this very generous support.”

“We are delighted to be able to support the Auckland Law School by establishing this Prize in Corporate Finance Law” says John Stephens who heads the Corporate Law team at Meredith Connell.
